Mosley-Mora draw

Alvarez, Ortiz, Ponce De Leon win by KO

Big Joe Miranda

By Francisco Salazar/Felipe Leon/Rocco Morales

Former multi-division world champion Sugar Shane Mosley (46-6-1, 39 KOs) and “Contender: Season One” winner and former WBC champ Sergio Mora (22-1-2, 6 KOs) boxed to an ugly twelve round draw on Saturday night at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles. Not much action in the first half of the in the bout as the reluctant Mora refused to engage in any exchanges as the 39-year-old Mosley stalked him around the ring. The fight was a bit more competitive after Mora slowed down and stood his ground more in the later rounds. Scores were 115-113 Mora, 116-112 Mosley, 114-114.

In a clash for the WBC super welterweight silver title, unbeaten Saul Alvarez (34-0-1, 26 KOs) showed what all the excitment is about with a spectacular knockout of former world champion Carlos Baldomir (45-13-6, 14 KOs). A left hook dropped Baldomir face first for the count. Time was 2:58.

Welterweight Victor Ortiz (28-2-1, 22 KOs) easily defeated Vivian Harris (29-5-1, 19 KOs), scoring a one-sided three round blowout. Ortiz dropped Harris three times in round two and once in round three before the bout was waved off. Time :45.

In a WBO featherweight eliminator, former world champion Daniel Ponce De Leon (40-2, 33 KOs) scored an explosive third round KO over Antonio Escalante (23-3, 15 KOs). After a one-sided beating, a big right to the head finished Escalante. Time was 2:40.

Arce-Parra draw, Soto wins

In the main event on Saturday night at the Dorado Soccer Stadium in Culiacán, Sinaloa, Mexico, three-division world champion Jorge “Travieso” Arce (55-6-2, 42 KOs) and former world champion Lorenzo “Lencho” Parra (31-2-1, 18 KOs) fought to a ten round draw. No scores were announced.

WBC lightweight champion Humberto “Zorrita” Soto (53-7-2, 32 KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over Fidel Monterrosa (24-1, 18 KOs). The tough and sometimes dirty fight was marred by slippery conditions inside the side that left Soto and Monterrosa slipping and sliding all night long. Scores were 115-112, 115-112, 118-109.

Undefeated welterweight prospect Omar “Businessman” Chavez (24-0-1, 17 KOs) scored a fourth round KO over Rodrigo Juarez (15-12-1, 11 KOs). A left-right-left-right combination sent Juarez down for the count at 2:47. They had met a couple of months back with Chavez getting the nod on a very close fight. No question this time.

Off-TV Results from Los Angeles

By Francisco Salazar/Felipe Leon/Rocco Morales

Frankie Gomez, in a scheduled 6 round Welterweight bout, impressively demolished Ricardo Calzada who previously had never been knocked out. Knockout artist, Gomez, was patient in his dismantling of Calzada and it wasn’t until the third round that Gomez went in for the kill. However, once the third round started, Gomez wasted little time and knocked down Calzada with a hook/cross combo. After Calzada beat the count, Gomez unleashed a barrage of punches that badly hurt Calzada. With the state commissioner on the ring apron urging the referee to call an end to the fight, Gomez literally beat the referee to the punch by unceasing a final vicious combination that laid out Calzada for good. By way of a knockout victory at 1:06 of the third round, Gomez improves to a perfect (6-0, 6 KOs), while Calzada drops to (2-3, 1 KO). (more…)

Frenkel KOs Maccarinelli

Cleverly, Konecny, Chisora, Macklin win too

By Karl Freitag

Frank Warren’s “Magnificent 7″ card at the LG Arena in Birmingham, England on Saturday night produced seven magnificent KOs as none of the bouts went the distance.

Unbeaten Alexander Frenkel (23-0, 18 KOs) scored the most spectacular win of his career with a brutal knockout of European cruiserweight champion Enzo Maccarinelli (32-5, 25 KOs). Early on, Frenkel outboxed the former WBO world champion, who was looking to load up on every punch. Maccarinelli did his share of damage but the bout ended dramatically when a hard left hook by Frenkel floored Maccarinelli in round seven. The badly hurt Maccarinelli bravely beat the count, but Frenkel put him down to stay with his violent follow-up barrage. Time was 2:30. (more…)

Golovkin/WBA Update

Oleg Hermann, manager Gennady Golovkin, has issued the following statement to FIGOsport.de:

“Much has been said about the situation in the WBA middleweight division in the last couple of days. It has been very surprising for us to read articles stating that all of parties involved had accepted that Gennady Golovkin would face Milton Nunez for the interim title and Hassan N’Dam would fight Avantandil Khurtzide for the vacant regular title. I think there is a big misunderstanding on the press side.” (more…)
